SEATTLE--(WordRake®, creator of the first editing software for lawyers, announced a strategic alliance with the Washington State Bar Association. WSBA employees have been using WordRake’s law practice software in-house, and it has helped them write more clearly, concisely, and confidently. Now, WSBA has signed a contract to offer the editing software to its 35,000 members with preferential pricing under the WSBA’s Law Office Management Assistance Program.)--Today,
WordRake software for attorneys will edit a 10-page document in 30 seconds, detecting and highlighting words that add no meaning. To use WordRake software, a lawyer composes in Microsoft Word, hits the “Rake” button, and accepts or rejects the WordRake suggestions. The software helps lawyers write clearly and concisely, and saves them -- and their clients -- time and money. The WordRake law firm software is there every hour of every day, the editor all lawyers need.
Peter Roberts, Practice Management Advisor for 13 years, relies on WordRake’s law office software in his own office. “I was enthusiastic about trying the WordRake software because its creator, Gary Kinder, is well qualified for teaching lawyers how to write better. Now he’s been awarded patents for his editing methods, and he’s developed software to help us! It’s a great tool – the more you use it, the more you think like it. Our members face tough challenges for upholding professional conduct, persuading judges, and expressing complex subjects in plain English. The WordRake legal practice software helps them meet these challenges with increasing ease. We have plans to expand using the software here within the Bar Association’s own offices, and we are delighted to offer it to all 35,000 of our members.”
